With the vast majority of our young people progressing to university each year, we are ideally placed to help our students achieve their aims with regards to Higher Education.

Our programme to support students with their application to university is well-established and involves a range of focused activities which take place both within the college and at local universities. These range from interview experience with local business people, advice from alumni on applying for university, visits to local universities, the annual UCAS fair, teaching sessions led by PhD students, and the highly successful Extended Project Qualification. Our experienced sixth form team have a proven track record in supporting students with their UCAS applications, from initial training on the process through to highly individualised support with personal statements. As our sixth form team will get to know you so well, the references they will write about you are bespoke, highly-accurate and put you in the best possible position to be successful. We have experience of knowing what university admissions tutors look for when selecting applicants for the interview stage, and get feedback that our references are of a quality rarely seen from larger colleges. We excel at supporting students who are looking to apply to the most competitive courses at Oxford and Cambridge universities or those applying to medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. You will be invited to join a specialist group which supports and prepares students for this route. The group meet regularly to work on everything from entrance examinations and interviews to developing impressive personal statements. Due to our size, we are able to personalise our approach to cater for your specific aspirations.
